There are few things in this world that are better than a good sandwich – that perfect combo of bread, spread, and fillings makes for a great meal and can really hit the spot. When I am in Walt Disney World, I am always on the lookout for a great sandwich – luckily I usually don’t have to look too far. In my culinary search through the world of Disney Dining, I have determined these 5 as the Top Walt Disney World Sandwiches:
Holiday Turkey Sandwich at Earl Of Sandwich In Downtown Disney – This holiday delight is packed with turkey, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce (I added lettuce and tomato to mine, and it was a really nice touch!), and is like Thanksgiving wrapped up in a warm, crisp roll! Their other sandwiches are all amazing too, served on bread that is baked daily in-house, and all the toppings are fresh and delicious! Oh, and don’t forget to grab a brownie sandwich for dessert – they are filled with your choice of vanilla, chocolate or peanut butter frosting (yeah, that’s right – FROSTING!)
Lighthouse Sandwich at Columbia Harbour House in the Magic Kingdom – This adorable spot serves up fried fish and chips, shrimp, salmon, a lobster roll with fresh chunks of lobster, and a delectable clam chowder – but also features an awesome meatless meal option too! The Lighthouse Sandwich features hummus with tomato and a crunchy broccoli slaw, and it’s served on multi-grain bread with chips on the side. It’s a great change from burgers or chicken, and the setting is great – grab an upstairs table near a window and watch the World go by as you eat!
Croque Monsieur at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom – Ham, gruyere cheese, and creamy bechamel combine on panini pressed bread to make a “must try” sandwich that is crispy on the outside and warm, stringy, and gooey on the inside. Oh, and it’s served with fries. Yum. Be Our Guest is one of WDW’s newest dining locations, and it’s themed after the animated classic Beauty And The Beast. Lunch is quick service and features this as well as other sandwich and salad options, and it can get crowded – so you might want to get there early (aka before they open!) to ensure that you will get a chance to try this delicious sandwich
Rotisserie Turkey Club at Wolfgang Puck Express in Downtown Disney – Avocado, bacon, red onion, plum tomatoes, romaine, and remoulade pair with plump juicy turkey to make a sandwich that will really fill you up! It’s a great twist on a traditional club, and the freshly roasted turkey really makes this sandwich shine! If you’re not in the mood for turkey, might I suggest the meatloaf sandwich instead (which is also topped with bacon!) – all the sandwiches there are served with crispy herb seasoned fries (which are the perfect complement!). If you have never eaten at Wolfgang Puck Express, you should definitely check it out, and if you aren’t in the mood for a sandwich then try the rotisserie chicken with mashed potatoes
Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich – This dessert sandwich definitely deserves a place on the list – with its homemade cookies baked fresh daily (in varieties like chocolate chip, sugar, and seasonal gingerbread), and ability to customize ice cream flavors, this one is a winner for sure. During the holiday season you will find choices like peppermint ice cream, and cookies decorated with festive sprinkles. You can find this treat at several places throughout the World, including Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom, Fountainview Café in Epcot, and Dino-Bite Snacks in Animal Kingdom. Oh, and the best part is – you can use a Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit to pay for it!
Ok so there they are – the top five most delicious sandwiches in all of the “World” (according to me that is!) – but I would LOVE to know what you think – what’s your favorite Disney sandwich?
